7. People hate it when you mention

 

Germany pre WWII.

Though the analogy is tired, overused, and often mistakenly applied by folks of all philosophical/political persuasions, the hard truth is.......

The analogy applies.

Dept of Homeland Security = Federalized, centrally controlled, police = Gestapo.

Swastiska = Nationalisitic fervor = "Patriot, American flag, Red White and Blue"

I expect the extremists will always try to implement their "vision" of a superior society. Often such visions end in oppression and or war. Such is the mindset of those that think in terms of conquest. The conquistadors of modern times are the financial power brokers.

Don't get me wrong, I still love what this country has historically represented, but these are indeed very, very dark times.

Population growth and industrialization of the third world = no possible cure for what is coming.

Profiteers will be selling mere survival to the highest bidder, regardless of how "exceptional" the nation is and corporate "personhood" will put the law squarely behind them.
